that has taken place will change the use of drones. >> how will it change the use of drones if it does? >> i'm not sure it will change the use of drones. i have not seen the administration give in enough from so critiques you have seen about drones. i think there still is a relatively dominant-- in washington that drones are a highly effective form of warfare. one of the possibles is this works with attenuated notion of effectiveness. we look at effectiveness in terms of body count, in terms of we killed someone who was a potential terrorist who might some day strike the united states. i think the administration needs to realize there are is a wider set of political and strategic costs and to measure those costs, those costs might then change the way the drones are used going forward. i have not seen movement yet to suggest the administration is rethinking its position. >> rose: resa brooks, tell me where you think the debate is now? >> i think the debate to some extent is in the wrong place right now. i think it's actually important to draw a distinction between drones which is just a

republicans say they're prepared to listen to change in the revenue side if, in fact, the administration is prepared to lay out its casheds on what it would do about reform of the entitlement programs. do you believe the president has done all that he should do in laying out what he is prepared to do on that front? >> i think he is prepared. the reason i think that they probably have not come up with specifics is that they have not found a partner who is willing to truly negotiate in a balanced way. in other words,-- in other words, to consider all three legs to that stool. to consider additional spending cuts as well as entitlement reform and revenue. once your speaker of the house says revenues are off the table, he's doing nothing more in the area of revenues, that means there is nobody there who you are able to negotiate with. unless you start with a willingness to look at all three parts of the solution, then it seems to me the president has done as much as he can be expected to do in saying he is willing to look at all three legs to that stool. so i don't criticize t
